Thanks for all the love from my last post! I felt it all and am sending it back to you.
I am delighted to be back blogging and looking forward to connecting with you all. That brings me joy and I’m all about doing ALL of the things that bring me joy.
My first blog was called Shanghai or Bust. My family and I were living in Shanghai at the time. I just went back to my first post and realized that it was on January 3, 2017. Who knew when I started that blog that exactly one year later on Jan 3, 2018, I would be fighting for my life in ICU after an allergic reaction during my mastectomy surgery. It’s hard to fathom.
That last year in Shanghai was a particularly challenging one. My husband’s company had fallen prey to their Chinese partner stealing their design and the company went bankrupt. Unfortunately this is a pretty common thing in China. Personally our finances took a huge hit but we picked ourselves back up and started again in Newfoundland. I found a job that I love and Glenn started his own consulting company. Things were looking up right? Then I was diagnosed with breast cancer and almost died. I still had more lessons to learn, I guess, and the journey has been beautiful and eye opening. Writing and posting blogs during that time was extremely helpful to my healing.
I have posted the link for two of my past blogs. My very first one for prosperity and the second one was a Self Care post I wrote on January 9, 2017. Even though I did not know I had breast cancer then, I knew I was not healthy or living my best life and this list was the start my journey. I remember how nervous I was about posting the list. It felt very raw to me but it helped me make it so. I am delighted to say that I have checked off everything on my self care list in that post – including losing 50 lbs from my highest weight!- and am well on the way to writing my new self care list with more goals to help me live my best life.
Shine your beautiful light friends.
Until next time!
Only joy, only love.
